Medium or Large Business Payroll

Online Payroll Companies Man

If you have a medium to large business then you already know a lot about payroll and where it fits in with your company's systems and processes. You are looking for a new payroll system for one of multiple reasons:

  • Cost - The cost of processing payroll in house including the cost of your payroll staff and software has become too high.  You are looking to reduce cost without losing any functionality.
  • Expertise - You find that it is too difficult staying up to date on all the tax calculations and regulations or that their may be trends or other things in the industry that you can take advantage of.
  • National Support -Your company has grown and has offices in more than one state and your local support can't keep up.
  • Issues - You are starting to see too many issues with data accuracy and timing with your current payroll system or provider and you want to find a more reliable partner.
  • Changes - Maybe you have a new CFO or a new accounting system or are switching related systems such as your 401(k) and are exploring what fits best or might work better.

You have a few options:

  • ERP Payroll - Use the ERP payroll module is part of your overall ERP system.  It will be integrated with your general ledger and HR systems.  You can get support from the vendor on the use of the payroll software.  You might be able to get business process support from your third party implementation and consulting partner but they will not be cheap.
  • Your accounting firm - You probably already have an accounting firm that helps with accounting issues.  However it could get expensive to have them research out of state issues.
  • Online Payroll Company - National third party payroll service providers have the expertise and technology to process your payroll accurately and a large staff to quickly answer any of your payroll questions.
